, Live Nation announced today thatBruce Springsteen & the E Street Band
will bring theirMagic
tour to Houston April 14, 2008. No venue is currently listed for Houston or the April 13 Dallas date, but the other dates on the tour are booked in basketball-type arenas and Toyota Center’s Web site lists nothing scheduled for that day. No 2008 events are currently listed for the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in the Woodlands, but the outdoor venue’s season usually gets underway around mid-April. Minute Maid Park might be a possibility, as April 14 falls between a six-game homestand against St. Louis and Florida and a three-game road trip to Philadelphia.
Magic debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last month and is currently No. 27 after six weeks. Springsteen and the E Street Band last visited Houston on their 2002-03 Rising tour. Other concerts headed for Toyota Center early next year include Matchbox Twenty and Alanis Morrissette February 28, Michael Buble March 1 and of course Van Halen January 28 – remember, tickets for that show go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, December 1, and are expected to sell out at approximately 10:00:07. – Chris Gray
